Uri Avnery explains how, according to former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, two Israeli generals, hitherto thought to be characterless cronies of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, aborted their master’s plan to attack Iran.
Jonathan Cook argues that Binyamin Netanyahu’s appointment of Danny Danon as ambassador to the UN is indicative of Israel's disdain for the international community and shows it has no place for negotiations or compromise.
Uri Avnery examines Binyamin Netanyahu’s blunders – his fumbling with Iran’s non-existent nuclear bomb, his attempts to play off Hamas against the Palestinian mainstream – and concludes that the man is a fool.
Uri Avnery explains the dilemma of whether administrative detention, which Israel has used extensively and until recently exclusively against Arabs – should be supported, even if it saves the lives of Arabs and Jews.
Alan Hart assesses the chances of Israel’s final solution of the Palestinian “problem” being implemented, i.e. ethnically cleansing them from the holy land and blackmailing the world with its nuclear weapons.
Uri Avnery argues that through their divisions and mutual hatreds, Hamas in Gaza and the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank are complicit in the Israeli occupation's strategy of divide and rule.
Alan Hart explains why only external pressure – as opposed to reason – can bring about a change in Israeli attitudes and policy, and pave the way for a just peace with the Palestinians.
